Nikon Coolpix 3100 Review
Date: Oct 1, 2003
Nikon Coolpix 3100 is a digital camera targeted
to point-and-shoot photographers and its image
quality is comparable to other quality 3 megapixels
resolution digital cameras.
For this review, I used the following settings
as my preferred settings (in fact, the Coolpix
3100 sets metering mode and ISO automatically):
Shooting Mode: Auto
Quality/Size: 3M* High (Fine/2048x1536 pixels)
All the pictures on this and the other pages (including
the navigation pictures at the top of each page)
have been taken by the Coolpix 3100 for this review.
The pictures on this page provide a good sample
of what the Coolpix 3100 is capable of and I have
provided the 800x600 version. Remember that this
version is of slightly lesser quality than the
original 2048x1536 version. Please open and download
only once to your hard drive -- and save me some
precious bandwidth. Thanks!
on a picture will display the 800x600 image
in a separate window. Leave that separate
window up for all the other original images
will also display in that same separate window.

Nikon Coolpix 3100 has a number of good points
that a point-and-shoot photographer will like:
it is very light yet the handgrip means I can
easily take one handed shot without camera shake;
it is easy to use on Programmed Auto mode giving
quality 3MP pictures; it's macro capability beats
that on much more expensive digital cameras; and
Nikon also includes free of charge some of the
best digital imaging software you can buy: NikonView,
Adobe Photoshop Elements, ArcSoft Panorama Maker.
